MLM Success Tips From Rocky Balboa

MLM Success

As we try to achieve higher things in life and find mlm success, people around us will most likely try to keep us to their level. People don’t accept change easily.

The answer to that is to keep on going. Don’t spend time with people like that.

Start to spend time with people who realize that most of the things you try will not work the first time.

But the most important thing is that you launch. And that you keep moving, you keep learning, you keep getting experiences. And you constantly improve as you get new information.

So you have to deal with people who recognize this is the way the world works.

People say “Well I tried and it didn’t work”. Well how many times did you try? “Well I tried it once.” Hey!!! You gotta try 10 or 20 times!

The fundamentals for your MLM Success are the same everywhere

The other day me and my kids watched the last Rocky Balboa movie. I took a snap shot of them watching it.

I love movies, especially those with inspirational thoughts. You can get great life lessons as well as mlm success tips from movies.

On this one, I particularly remember the part where Rocky’s son puts the blame for his lack of success on his father. He says with a name like his it’s not easy. That’s the reason he got a job. People don’t recognize his own talent.

He goes as far as asking his father to not return boxing.

That’s when Rocky says…

When you were a little baby I’d say to your mother, "this kid’s gonna be the best kid in the world. This kid’s gonna be somebody better than anybody I ever knew."

And you grew up good and wonderful. It was great just watching you, every day was like a privilege.

Then the time come for you to be your own man and take on the world, and you did. But somewhere along the line, you changed. You stopped being you. You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you’re no good. And when things got hard, you started looking for something to blame, like a big shadow.

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.

But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!

Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!

I’m always gonna love you no matter what. No matter what happens. You’re my son and you’re my blood. You’re the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, ya ain’t gonna have a life.  


That’s what he said to his son. And that’s the most important component in your success.

MLM success comes from within first

When I started in this industry I had unshakable belief in me. But I was terrible at the job.

What kept me going was my belief. I knew that one day I’d have a positive impact on millions of people’s lives.

I just didn’t know how yet.

Then I met this guy. A network marketing legend. He gave me several mlm success tips and one day he said… whatever you do, you need to understand and master the fundamentals.

He said in gymnastics, the fundamental is balance. In learning a new language it’s pronounciation.

In network marketing it’s marketing and communication.

Marketing is how to create interest in your product or business. Attracting prospects to you.

Communication is how to convey information to your interested prospects.

In the process of getting good at marketing and communication, you will get hit many times.

Until you get hit enough times you won’t have MLM success

By improving your effectiveness at those two skills, you will increase your belief in your ability to succeed. So go out there and invest in yourself, invest in becoming good at this.

Get hit and keep moving forward. Build your mlm power.

And as Rocky said “Until you start believing in yourself, ya ain’t gonna have a life.”

And when you succeed, people will not remember you for your failures, they will remember you for your successes.

    1. En effet, il est souvent plus facile de passer un message en faisant un parallèle avec quelque chose que les gens ont de la facilité à associer.

      Et en plus, le fait que Silvester Stallone s’est déjà donné la peine de penser à la manière de passer son message, le plus dûr du travail est fait.

  1. Hi Stephen
    I came across your website and I love it!! You are a great example of how to brand yourself and give a warm feeling, not to mention your posts are full of value and information that inspires.
    What is your “go to source of information” and who do read last thing at night?
    Take Care

    1. Hi Emma,

      Thank you for your warm words 😉

      My source of inspiration comes from my personal experience. Going in the trenches and doing things provides the best insights.

      This is why my articles are based on what I did or watched (Rocky’s movie) for example.

      I obviously read on personal growth, get on webinars and trainings that help me improve my skills.

      I hope to see you around again soon!


  2. Stephane I love the Rocky Movies. I can be a sucker sometimes. I watch very litte TV but If I run across a Rocky Movie I am stuck. I love what you posted and how Rocky shared that life has battles but you fight and you keep fighting. From one Rocky fan to another Great Post.

    "Success Is A People Business"

    1. Thanks Brian, I too have been inspired as a young boy through Rocky's movies. And they keep inspiring everything I watch them.

  3. Robert Kiyosaki's Rich dad told him "The most successful people in the world are the most rejected people in the world. The least rejected people are the least rejected. So if you want to be successful you need to be rejected more and more". love the Rocky movie. You should read the story of how Rocky was made, truly inspirational and quite unbelievable!"
